The CAST 11 podcast network is sponsored by the Prescott Valley Outdoor Summit. Where adventure comes together.
This Saturday, September 10, guests of Sharlot Hall Museum will be introduced to frontier healthcare during the museum’s Living History Adventure.
For pioneers on the Arizona frontier, the nearest doctor was often miles away and they had to make do with home medical solutions. How were common illnesses and injuries treated on the Prescott Wild Frontier in 1870? For many settlers, healthcare began in the garden, with herbal remedies that could be made from scratch.
On Saturday’s program, guests will interact with Living History performers, test their sales resistance against a snake oil salesman, and create and taste their own healthy herbal tea blend. September also means the apple harvest is approaching and the cider press will be ready to go – as the saying goes: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
The program will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Sharlot Hall Museum. Admission is $12 for adults and free for members and children 12 and under. Mark your calendars for next month’s October 8 living history adventure, “Victorian Superstitions,” where visitors will get a dose of haunting 19th-century lore and a chance to go on a “ghost hunt” at the Museum.
Next weekend, September 17-18, the Prescott Indian Art Market returns to the Sharlot Hall Museum with works by over 100 Native American artists. Enjoy a weekend of art, music, demonstrations, cultural performances and more at one of the nation’s best native art markets. Tickets can be pre-purchased online and new memberships include market entry.
Further information on all programs and events can be found on the Museum’s website at www.sharlothallmuseum.org.
